Unread post by jblowery » Tue Dec 24, 2019 9:29 am

Dealer passes on (Card_K-C) I'm holding

(Card_J-C) (Card_9-S) (Card_9-D) (Card_10-D) (Card_Q-D)

You call spades or diamonds?

In general how do you decide between next and reverse next when u are a little stronger in reverse next? I see 2nd seat and dealer call next quite a bit actually.

Since you asked.

It depends on my partner's playing style. The opponents. The score and of course. What's in my hand. If I'm weary of calling can I reasonably pass and possibly have a stopper or euchre hand? Perhaps it might get to my partner and they could call? For me I have to be pretty strong to jump the fence in most cases. With this hand I'm still calling next. Here you have 2 voids with the right and likely a boss 2nd diamond. Yes you are right there will be times the other team will have it. You can still make this hand for next. Even if your partner has 1 trump. I think just always calling with your best is not good. This is a team game and you want to consider your partners holdings. I try to hit my partner as much as possible when I can. There are times to go the other way but sometimes you have to gage by gut when to do that. That is why actual playing experience with having many different situations under your belt is so valuable. Accounting for card distribution is also a factor too. What is your opponents likely passing with along with your partner and you can start to visualize what they might have. I mainly use this on loner hands vs opponents. You can use this in opening leads try to hit your partners void or aces as well when playing normally.
